Cambridge City extend charity partnership with Cambridge City Foodbank
Cambridge City will maintain their charity partnership with Cambridge City Foodbank for the 2021/22 season.
For last year's aborted campaign, the Lilywhites provided a collection point at the Supporters' Trust shop at home games for supporters to drop off vital items to help those in the community in need of support.
They will continue to provide the facility this season for the foodback, which is part of the Trussell Trust network and was founded in 2010.
Chris Cox, City's media and communications director, said: “With last season curtailed we were not able to support the charity as much as we would of liked, so maintaining our partnership is the right thing to do.
“Last year our supporters donated a huge amount to help and support our community and we are grateful for our Supporters Trust for organising the collections.”
The foodbank exists to provide food and relief to the needy within a 25-mile radius of Cambridge, operating from seven distribution centres located around the city and Cambourne. The centres provide emergency food parcels to people referred by professional support agencies around the city. They also operate the Fairbite food club shop in Arbury.
Margaret Saner, the CEO of Cambridge City Foodbank, said: “Cambridge City Foodbank is delighted to continue its partnership with Cambridge City Football Club and thanks the fans for their continued support which is most gratefully received. We look forward to a really successful year for the Lilywhites."
